I work from two private practices, one in Manchester city centre which is walking distance from King Street, Deansgate and Piccadilly and has its own parking.   My second private practice is based in the beautiful countryside of Lymm, Cheshire where ample parking is available. Both have light and peaceful rooms which enable you to feel relaxed and welcome.  Great places where you can think and explore your problems in a tranquil setting to gain clarity and insight.

My clients value the anonymity and confidentiality of my practices, I follow the BACP code of ethics and am a registered counsellor with BACP. I am also constantly updating my skills and qualifications with regular CPD training days.

Ensuring that I work ethically and safely is very important to me and that is the reason I have chosen to undertake the courses and training I have carried out. I’m very interested in the dynamics that occur between couples and how we relate to each other. I particularly chose to train with the Relate Institute for a number of reasons one, they are the leaders in the field of providing relationship therapy to individuals and couples. The training they provide for counsellors is rigorous, thorough and in-depth.  Secondly the Relate Institute educates its counsellors from an Integrative perspective, which means I have been trained to work from a Systemic, Psychodynamic and Narrative perspective and I have been trained to integrate these perspectives successfully

The Masters in Relationship Therapy is a 3 year course with a  placement to practice at a Relate centre. Training to be psychotherapist takes time, beware anybody who has only done a day or couple of weeks/short number of hours course on counselling or is not trained to work with couples or the areas they specialise in, as couples therapy is not to be taken lightly. There are a number of dynamics in the room with couples, such as transference, projective identifications, collusion, or at times controlling or abusive partners, if this is not handled by a counsellor who is trained to manage it then that counsellor is working unethically and not safely for themselves or their clients
